Gapminder Desktop

Hans Rosling’s Gapminder recently released an Adobe Air version of their very interesting and informative Gapminder World software, which was until now only available online.  For the most part there are very few differences.  The two noticeable additions are the ability to access the resource offline without need of a browser and the ability to bookmark charts for later viewing.

It would be nice if they could eventually find a way to integrate some of the similar tools they have in Gapminder Labs that allow comparison of sub-national regions in the United States, China, and India into the Desktop version.
